What an amazing stay, between the amazing breakfast every morning to the friendly and helpful staff, there was nothing not to enjoy. It made the trip to Cape Town so enjoyable because at the end of every busy fun filled day we had a great place to go an relax.

We had the poolside cottage which has a separate living room with self catering facilities. It was spacious, comfortable and attractively furnished. The Wild Olive is well located for all of Cape Town's major attractions. Breakfasts were excellent and the staff were pleasant and helpful. Highly recommended.

Comfortable, cost effective, it is close to town and all other amenities. Quick to the airport. I always stay there when in Cape Town. The Waterfont, Kalk bay or Camps Bay, all are easily accessible. Great restaurants are within a few blocks drive.
